Cuvée Julia Napa Valley Red Blend 2009

From a winery we really miss, this is the flagship cuvee from Delectus. Their daughter did the artwork for their Cuvee Julia bottles, and with rare exceptions (their 2007 Cab Franc being one of them), this meritage is always the star of a given vintage. Classic Napa cab that is still drinking really well. — a year ago

Boulder Falls Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Tasted right after finishing the 2009 Bear Crossing. This was also excellent and drinking well. An interesting comparison between the two. While the Bear Crossing had more depth, this one had greater breadth to the palate. Could be that this is ultimately a slightly better wine than the Bear Crossing and that it will gain some more weight in the next couple of years. Doesn’t much matter to me, though, since these were the only bottles of these two wines that I had in the cellar. Both excellent wines, though. Enjoy! — 2 years ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2013

Fittingly consumed during Euro 2020 final - tasty beginning but the real enjoyment was 90 mins later. Chocolate covered blueberry flavors with some tobacco and red licorice aromas. — a year ago

Spring Mountain District Petite Sirah 2008

From Gerhard Reisacher’s now defunct Delectus winery (actually, the winery might still be active, but he’s long gone and has his own excellent eponymous label out of Knight’s Valley), this is drinking quite well! — a year ago

Knights Valley Merlot 2009

This 12 year old Merlot from Knights Valley is awesome but could go another 10-20 years, I believe. Big ole Merlot that is delicious. Well done. — a year ago

Knights Valley Cabernet Franc 2007

Without question the best cabernet franc I’ve ever had from California, this is unfortunately the last bottle I have. I don’t know what happened in 2007, but Gerhard made a spectacular cab franc that has no parallel before or since (of course, the winery no longer exists - at least not in any recognizable form - but you get my meaning). Still drinking incredibly well, this was a singular achievement from what always was a WAY underrated winery. — a year ago
